TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
This will reduce the problems you get with multi page tables.
A simplistic method of dealing with this is to create a template
document with the various block formats you use. Make it a read-only
so you don't inadvertently edit them. Then copy and paste as needed to
the working document.

Our choicest plans
have fallen through
our airiest castles
because of lines
we neatly drew
and later neatly
